Since Aug 2005

65+ year old female

Neuchatel, Switzerland

High School English teacher. I've lived in Switzerland for 40 years. As a teacher, I have LOTS of holidays, so we travel all over the world. Also spend weekends in European cities, hiking in the Alps, and traveling around Europe with my husband, friends or my students. Sometimes I go further afield with them on the exchange trips I organize (Thailand, Canada, New Zealand, Australia). I like a bit of comfort on my travels, but that actually means a good bed and my own bathroom. On the other hand, I'll stay in very basic huts when hiking in the Alps or Himalayas, and don't mind that at all. I don't like just sitting on a beach, but enjoy visiting the sights, walking in rain-forests or up mountains, meeting people and good food. I've made lots of very interesting friends from all over the world on my travels, and love communicating with them afterwards. Have got some very solid friendships as a result - people who have even been to stay with me here in the Swiss Alps!
